Thursday 14 March, 5pm at the Royal Statistical Society

The statistical implications of the 
reorganisation of the health system in England – 
who needs which statistics for what purpose?

The 2012 Health and Social Care Act has led to 
the transfer of responsibilities from Strategic 
Health Authorities and Primary Care Trusts to 
National, Regional and Local Commissioning 
Bodies. And local authorities have been given a 
major role in relation to public health. New 
accountability mechanisms – the NHS Outcomes 
Framework and the Public Health Outcomes 
Framework – establish the desired outcomes of the health system.

What does this mean for official statistics about 
health, in England? What changes are the 
producers of these statistics planning, and how 
well will the changes meet the needs of users of health statistics?

A range of speakers will talk about:
- the impact of the new arrangements on data 
collection and the provision of data and statistics
- the statistical needs of public health 
analysts, and how these are being addressed
- meeting the requirements of diverse users, the 
tensions in multiple uses of health data, and 
where and how information is published.
